COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed during the hop harvest with a portion of unkilned or “wet” hops fresh off the vine. Apricot in color, Broo Doo’s nose has dominant orange, pine sap and floral notes, balanced by a glazed nut and toffee malt body. This celebration of the hop harvest has intense tropical fruit, citrus and spicy accents that showcase the complexity of the hops we all love. October release.

Beautiful beer all the way around. Nice strong aroma hits you right away and a perfect balance between the malt and the hops.

Solid orange pour of medium clarity, inch or two of offwhite head, great lacing. Juicy and bitter in the nose, citrus and floral hops smell, pineapple, sticky honey/pollen that’s characteristic of 3F’s beers. Pert, lively carbonation, mouthfeel that’s juicy like orange juice, very clean finish leaving the tongue tingly. Very balanced somewhat juicy flavor, lot of juicy citrus hops, orange and tangerines, and some pine hops too, slightly astringent malts, buscuity and rye. This is a heavenly beer, second harvest ale in my eyes behind Founder’s.

AMber/orange in color with a small creamy white head. The aroma is HUGE! citrus grapefruit,pineapple orange peach and pear come through. I smelled this beer for a good 5 minutes before the first sip. While it started out hoppy with the same flvors as aromas, it was not overly bitter. A nice carmelly and malty flavor helps to balance the hoppiness. With all the attention Dreadnaught gets, BrooDoo will give it a run for its money. Another great beer brewed by the Floyds.

Phenomenal effort! Deep rich amber in color. Huge floral/grapefruit nose. Rich malty flavor. Much smoother than Dreadnaught, but similar hop profile. Easy drinking. A real treat. Finish is smooth and slightly bitter.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2007 On tap at FFF brewpub. This was just tapped, as it wasn’t even on the beerlist yet. It was amazingly strong, both in flavor and aroma. It had a great "striking" feature to it, where it punched your palate hard and fast, but then lingered on softly afterwards. Full of bright citrus; grapefruit and orange zest, and had a wonderful complexity and balance. Bought a 22 ouncer afterwards for later that day. Bomber: Just had the bomber, and it was even better than I remember at the brewpub on tap. It had intense fresh hop aromas, that I love, which had a "green" element to it...like in most traditional harvest ales. It was so deliciously strong with amazing flavor, intensity, complexity, and bitterness. What a great beer. One of the best ales FFF has. I wish it was more available.

Intense hop aroma and flavor that almost tingled the nose and mouth. Not hop bitter but flavor and aroma hops kill! INtense citrus and light pine flavors dominate with a dry to semi sweet malt sweetness that is just right. On tap the beer has more to of the hop mouth zest but the but the bottle is almost equal in hop intesity. A bit a a metallic aftertaste that kept this one from scoring higher.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 22 OZ. bottle, poured a clear copper color with beige head. Cirtus and hop scent... Fresh tasting hoppy beer, with a lasting flavor of good bitterness. Very unique taste. Amazing IPA. Once again Three Floyds nailed it!

Glowing, gorgeous multi shaded amber pour with a creamy lasting beige head, and some lacing. Smell is rich, fruity hops, a bit spicy, and sweet. Very nice big bold, spicy, biting, sharp, hop flavor and some pine and lots of green fresh character as well. Crisp carbonation and rich creamy body. Citrusy flavors and a bittersweet grapefruit flavor lingers on into the finish. Probably my new favorite fresh hop beer. Very nicely done and another awesome beer by Three Floyds. Can’t thank you enough for this one, Matt!

22 oz. Bomber - A friend and I went to FFF’s brewpub on our brewery tour. We bought the first bottle of this season (Nov. 1). Pours a cloudy, hazy orange/amber color with great nearly white head. Aroma is incredible - very fresh smelling hops paired with all different kinds of citrus and other fruits topped off with a grassy/woodsy-ness. Fantastic. Flavor is nearly the same just a bit more subdued. Definitely one to seek out!

Darker yellow with an off-white head. Huge aromas of pineapple, pine, mango, and other citrus. Just beautiful. In the taste I got pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, and peach; so much citrus and excellently balanced. Medium carbonation and a little less than medium bodied. Best wet hop beer I’ve had. Another great FFF’s beer!
